Summary
Who would ever have imagined that the typically sedentary pleasures of video games would become responsible for sparking a growing trend towards movement-based and fitness-oriented home entertainment programs? With the introduction of Nintendo's Wii and other, similar game systems, Americans are suddenly hoisting themselves off their couches, grabbing a console, and getting heart-healthy workouts--all while remaining in front of their TV screens and having a blast. Early reports indicate the health benefits of these activity- and fitness-based video games are considerable. Yet there have also been reports of certain kinds of injuries peculiar to Wii and similar game systems. This book sorts out the reality from the hype and shows how you can minimize the likelihood of injury while maximizing your fitness-and fun-levels. Includes some common myths and facts about video game fitness and injuries and ten great questions to ask a doctor
